  • SB 5530, which would have reduced the minimum wage to $9.53/hour for everyone who happened to work outside of King County is dead.
  • SB 5532, which would have reduced the minimum wage to $9.53/hour for everyone whose employer happens to be classified as a nonprofit is dead.
  • And SB 5541, which would have created a special sub-minimum wage for younger workers is dead too.

In other words: we did it! 🙂
